Pastoral Care

As the Rev. Wayne Arnason once said,

“Take courage friends.
The way is often hard, the path is never clear,
and the stakes are very high.
Take courage.
For deep down, there is another truth:
you are not alone.”

There are many ways to connect with both clergy and  laypersons at Saint Thomas Church to offer guidance, hear confessions, or plan major life events such as baptisms and weddings. Pastoral care resources are below.

If you have any urgent pastoral needs, please call our Pastoral Care Line at 917-674-1899, and you will be forwarded to a place where you can leave a message for a priest.

  • On Sunday mornings, after the 11am mass, the laying on of hands and anointing of the sick and intercessory prayer for healing are available in the Chantry chapel. A priest and a lay intercessor are both available to pray with you.
